Holy cow! The Cubs beat the Padres 6-3 in San Diego on Wednesday to sweep the series. Kyle Hendricks continued his dominance, striking out 8 in 6 IP. His MLB-best ERA stands at 2.19.

Zobrist drove in 2, Contreras homered, Soler went 2-for-3, and KB went 2-for-4. Chapman struck out three in the ninth to earn the save.

The first place Cubs have Thursday off before wrapping up the road trip in LA with a three-game weekend series at Dodger Stadium.

Let's go!
